Tyler Booth, born and raised in Campton, Kentucky, had a musical upbringing influenced by both rock and country genres. Initially drawn to rock through his father’s involvement with a local rock group, he later discovered a passion for country music after hearing Jamey Johnson’s “High Cost Of Living.” With a guitar in hand at 12, Booth honed his skills, eventually gaining local fame for his baritone voice and songwriting abilities.
Booth’s recent release, “Bring on the Neon,” co-written with his hero Jamey Johnson, has received acclaim. Johnson praises Booth’s voice as a resonant force in country music and highlights his songwriting prowess.
Enrolling at Morehead State University at 18, Booth pursued traditional music studies. A connection with a professor, who was a former touring partner of Craig Morgan, led to an introduction to Nashville songwriter-producer Phil O’Donnell. This collaboration resulted in Booth’s first self-titled EP, independently released in September 2017.
